1. What is RamahDate?
RamahDate is a new online dating site for Jewish singles affiliated with Ramah, created through a partnership between Reshet Ramah and JDate (Spark Networks).
2. What is a “Ramah Badge”?
Once users complete their profiles, a “Ramah Badge” will display indicating his/her status as a Ramah alumnus/a. This will enable users of both RamahDate and JDate to search and filter for others displaying this badge.
3. What if someone falsely claims to have a Ramah affiliation?
Ramah is unable to verify that an individual who signs up for RamahDate is actually a Ramah alum. It is possible that people who have no affiliation with Ramah will input false information to obtain a Ramah Badge; it is unfortunately a well-known fact that users of dating sites do provide false information on their profiles. Ramah alumni using this site will of course need to do their own checking when meeting with people who identify themselves as Ramahniks.
Language on the website indicates that Ramah is not liable for misrepresentation of a claimant’s affiliation with Ramah.
4. What if I never attended a Ramah camp or program?
Unfortunately, if you never participated in a Ramah program, you are not eligible for a Ramah Badge. We still encourage you to sign up for JDate and, once a member of JDate, you can search and filter for others who have the Ramah Badge.
5. Do I get a special discount or rate for RamahDate?
The rate is the same as the JDate rate, which from time to time may include special discounts. However, participation in RamahDate will support the Ramah Camping Movement, with a portion of the initial subscription purchase being directed to Ramah camper scholarships.
6. What if I am a Ramah alumnus and I am already subscribed to JDate?
Users who are already subscribed to JDate will be able to access the Ramah Badge and add it to their pre-existing profiles. They will also be able to filter using the Ramah Badge to search for other Ramah alumni. To add a badge to your existing JDate profile click here.
7. What is the minimum age requirement to join RamahDate?
All members of RamahDate must 18 or older. If we learn of or are notified of an active user under the age of 18, we will take the necessary steps to remove that user’s profile.
